Plugin Alliance is proud to announce availability of bx_subsynth, a unique processing plugin built around the digital heart and soul of the (discontinued) dbx 120XP Subharmonic Synthesizer, using Brainworx’s M/S (Mid-Side) matrix technology to control the stereo field and add sub, punch, and saturation to sounds. bx_subsynth generates subharmonics in up to three discrete frequency bands versus the original hardware’s two. The addition of a higher (56-80 Hz) Synthesized Frequency bass band for resynthesis allows anyone to enhance a wider variety of instruments, including snare drum and acoustic guitar. The Tight Punch control, a 6th-order resonant Butterworth high-pass filter at the input that can be used with or without the subharmonics summed in, creates crystal-clear, body-thumping bass by adding a resonant sub-bass peak and filtering out unwanted lows below its cutoff frequency.
Plugin Alliance bx_subsynth is available now for $149. It requires macOS 10.8 or later and an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host.
